[UPDATE 3:42 p.m.] Three Homicides in Less Than 24 Hours; Stabbing Victim From Weott Dies
According to Sgt. Ken Swithenbank of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, the stabbing victim that was injured last night in Weott (see here for further information) passed away from his wounds. This along with what appears to be two homicides in Fortuna today makes three homicides this weekend.
Although the details are still coming in the victim appears to be a young man from the Weott area. Swithenbank who was reached while off duty did not yet know whether the suspect in this incident has been arrested.
UPDATE 3:42 p.m.: Cpl. Chad Zeck of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office (incidentally, he was very kind and helpful in an earlier, sad incident) tells us that the situation is under investigation but no one has been arrested. He believes that the situation as he understands it shouldn’t lead neighbors to be concerned for their safety.
